My Oven Roasted Turkey Recipe (25lb Turkey)
Stick of margarine
1 Red Onion
4 celery Stalks
1 Green Pepper
Lawry's Seasoning Salt
First things first, make sure that the turkey is properly thawed. There are guidelines. Search the Internet for that info. Remove the turkey from the packaging and rinse it off good, under cold water. DON'T FORGET TO REMOVE THE EXTRAS!! In every turkey there are a few pieces that are in plastic bags inside the bird. Get those out. (I throw mine out, but my mother says you can make stuff out of it. I don't know anything about that.)
After rinsing, melt the stick of butter in a bowl, after the butter is melted, add a 1/4 cup of olive oil to it. Use a brush or your hands to lather this oil mixture all over your turkey. Generously season the bird with Lawry's Seasoning Salt, Ms. Dash, Salt, Pepper & Sage. You be the judge of how much. I like a lot so i season a lot. Cover the entire bird with seasoning.
Roughly chop your veggies in big chunks and stuff the bird with them. This flavors the bird from the inside.
Place your bird in the appropriate sized cooking bag that is specifically made for the oven. Follow the instructions that come with the bags. These bags, no matter the brand, are a life saver. If you follow the time instructions, you will have a perfect, juicy, thoroughly cooked bird every time.
